The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy

There's a new challenge over at Scrap Creations today - and it's 'Fairytales'. It's sponsored by Pink Cat Studio, so we were lucky enough to work with some of their gorgeous images! Here's my card:

Yep, it's a twisted easel!! I've had the 'blank' made up ready to use for ages, but I was waiting for the right card IYKWIM!?!? I've coloured the image with promarkers and all the papers are from Cosmo Cricket Delovely, as well as some purple card from Bazzill Basics. The flowers are a mix of Woodware, Wild Rose Studio and Papermania. The glitter foam swirl is from QVC and sentiment is Craftwork cards. Oh, and I've used my MS grass and butterfly punches. I must admit to having taken some inspiration from a card in Quick Cards magazine.
Now if you're a bit puzzled about whether the Sugar Plum Fairy is a fairy tale, I must admit - we all knew the theme when we picked our images and then as we were all uploading our cards, we started realising that they weren't actually fairytales, but hey, close enough!!?? LOL!
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
And that's about it. And that's about it from me for Scrap Creations, as this is my last post as a DT member, there's a new team starting on the 1st April. I wanted to step down and dedicate more time to my other DTs, so it's all good.
I'm not having a very good day today - my dog, Tippy was ill on Saturday (dodgy stomach!) and so I went through the usual procedure, starving him for 24 hours then introducing plain food and he's been OK for a couple of days. Well, last night all I can say is, we had a rather explosive episode!! I won't go into anymore detail than that but you get the picture! Anyway, it continued through the night, so I've had hardly any sleep. Fingers crossed he gets over it this time cos he's got a really sensitive stomach and he's had this quite a few times but a couple of times, I've ended up having to take him to the vet for some injections and it's not a pleasant experience for either of us!! Anyway, enough rambling!! I hope you're day's better than mine. Bye for now........
